Stardust Memorial Park

As many local residents will be aware, the condition of the Stardust Memorial Park has continued to deteriorate. The park is a very valued local amenity for families in our community.
Due to anti-social behaviour, large areas of the park have been burned. As a result many local people have been deterred from using the park. Smashed bottles litter the park and the water in the park has been polluted. Due to the many cutbacks of the Fianna Fail and Fine Gael/Labour Governments, there are no Park Warders in Stardust Memorial Park. This lack of warders has been detrimental to the Park.
éirígí Dublin Northeast Representative Ciaran Heaphey has been taking local residents' concerns on board regarding the park. Heaphey contacted Dublin City Council's Environmental Complaints Hotline regarding Stardust Memorial Park. All the communities concerns raised, were logged with a council representative.
Ciaran, speaking about the issue said: “It is an absolute disgrace what has happened to the Stardust Memorial Park. I would urge local residents to contact Dublin City Council via the Environmental Complaints Hotline on 1850 365 121 and to quote the complaint reference number of 11242. With enough pressure from the local community we can improve the condition of Stardust Memorial Park.
If the council refuses to act on community concerns pressure needs to be applied by the community."
